Now that things have settled down I wanted to tell you about Oliver. When i was in recovery from my c section, the NICU nurse came and informed us that Oliver had signs of Down Syndrome. The diagnosis has since been confirmed.
We did not know ahead of time so this was quite shocking and devastating news to hear at the time. He has some heart problems and other medical issues related to the diagnosis.
This has been such a roller coaster of emotions. I am completely in love with this child and while the diagnosis scares us, i would not trade his life for anything. He is perfect in our eyes. I'm scared for the future but we are trying to focus on one day at a time. This is really just very emotional, but i will say it has so far brought DH and i closer together and we have learned things about each others character that have amazed us. I just wanted to share and ask for your support. I'm hopeful that he will thrive and amaze us in ways we did not expect.thanks
